25. no. The Olympics were to bolster his resume and name recognition.
He founded Bain and held those positions for years. He didn't need those titles to pad his resume: he needed them to retain control and suck up more money.
He pretended to leave those positions to bolster his campaign to be governor of Mass. He'd been creamed by Kennedy in the past due to ads about his outsourcing and job losses. Shannon O'Brien started hitting him on outsourcing again, only this time he countered with ads claiming the outsourcing took place after he retired Bain in 1999. And in 2002 he retroactively retired to support his claim.
He expected that strategy to work again, but Obama's team obviously were aware and had the means, time and access to dig deeper. They suckered him in with their initial attacks on outsourcing, then outflanked him with the contradictory FEC/SEC filings.
Then they cornered him totally with the demand that he show his taxes like previous candidates have done for many years. A demand now being taken up by some of the GOP as they try to distance themselves from him.
He either lied to the SEC or lied to the FEC. If he shows his taxes, he proves who he lied to and shows whether he committed a felony. And also happens to show his income, his offshore accounts and businesses, and how very little tax he paid before 2010. If any.
